Applicant Profile 

Newton College of the Sacred Heart has a "Rolling Admis- 
sions Plan.'' A student may apply upon completion of her 
junior year, provided she has taken the required College 
Entrance Examination Board Tests. The Committee on 
Admissions meets about once each month and reviews those 
applications presented with complete credentials. The 
decision of the Committee is then communicated to the ap- 
plicant. Newton subscribes to the Candidates Reply Date 
and, therefore, will not require the accepted applicant's 
decision before May 1. 

Credentials must include the following: 

Application for admission, filed before February 15. 

High school transcript. 

Recommendation from high school principal or guidance 


Scores of the CEEB Scholastic Aptitude Test and three 

Achievement Tests (one of which must be English). 

The tests may be taken in the junior year of high school, or 
in December or January of the senior year; they may also 
be divided between the two years. 

An interview at the College is desirable; it is expected of 
those applicants who live within a reasonable distance of 
the campus. The interview may be arranged by letter or 
telephone call to the Director of Admissions, Newton Col- 
lege of the Sacred Heart, Newton, Massachusetts, 02159 
(Tel. 617 332-6700). 


General Information 

Newton College of the Sacred Heart, founded in 1946, shares in the 
educational tradition of the Society of the Sacred Heart which for 
more than one hundred sixty years and in every part of the world has 
devoted itself to the education of girls and young women. Newton is 
a four-) ear liberal arts college for about 800 young women, of whom 
650 live on the campus. 

The College is located on a forty-six acre campus in a residential 
suburb of Boston, providing the students with quiet and pleasant 
surroundings and the intellectual and cultural advantages of being 
within easy access to great universities, libraries, museums and cul- 
tural activities in and around the city of Boston. Logan Airport may 
be reached from the campus in twenty minutes; interstate bus routes 
and railroad stations are easily accessible. 

The policies of the College are based on the assumption that a girl 
coming to Newton has had a sound intellectual and moral formation 
and has the capacity for self-discipline. Without the latter, she will 
almost invariably find herself in academic or disciplinary difficulties, 
because students are expected to assume responsibility for all aspects 
of their life. 

Only those regulations are imposed which are necessary to insure 
consideration for others, refinement of manners and good taste. Ex- 
cept in serious matters, the standards of cooperation and conduct are 
determined and upheld by the Student Government Association and 
the Social Committee. 

The Student Academic Council is an elected body which acts as 
liaison between the students and the Dean and Faculty and which 
sponsors cultural activities. Among these is a series of lectures by dis- 
tinguished scholars, artists and public servants which take place at 
intervals throughout the academic year. The lecture series is named 
in honor of Mr. David Reeves in gratitude lor his generous gifts to 
the college library over a period of years. 

The student's time is her own. She is expected so to use it that she 
gives full time and attention to her studies. She should also arrange 
that she has sufficient exercise and rest and has time for an adequate 
social life which the Administration considers to be an integral part 
of a college experience. Unless students have arranged to be awav 
overnight, they are ordinarily to be in their dormitories by ten 

18 General Information 

o'clock, except on Friday and Saturday nights when they may be out 
until one o'clock, provided they are accompanied by an escort or 
several girls. Arrangements to remain out later than ten o'clock on 
other nights in order to attend lectures, concerts, plays or other cul- 
tural activities are made by the Interest Committee. Any student who 
has the use of a car is allowed to keep it on campus, provided she 
pays the fee and has it registered. 

The law of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts prohibits the serv- 
ing of alcoholic beverages to those under twenty-one years of age. 
Therefore, the College does not allow drinking on campus; it cannot 
assume responsibility for its students who disregard the law when 
they are off campus. 

The students are housed in six dormitories, members of the four 
classes living on each floor. For this reason regulations apply to all 
students without respect to their class. This places great responsibility 
on the freshmen, but the upperclassmen share this responsibility with 
them, and give them sound advice and help in academic, social and 
personal matters. 

More formal counseling is available from the Dean and Assistant 
Dean in academic matters, from the religious residing in each house, 
from the house mother, and from faculty members, many of whom 
have had training in psychology. Each student is urged to seek help 
from the person who she feels can understand her and give her 
sound advice. Those who seem to be in more serious difficulties may 
be referred to psychologists or psychiatrists off campus upon recom- 
mendation of the college physician and with agreement of the par- 

The health services are also organized with the expectation that the 
students are sufficiently mature to know when they need medical help 
or care. Besides the nurse resident in each dormitory, the College 
maintains the John W. Spellman Infirmary, a self-contained unit with 
fifteen beds. A physician visits the infirmary four days a week, and 
every day if necessary. Unless a student has been recommended to a 
doctor by her own physician, she is expected to use the physicians 
whose services are made available through the infirmary. When a 
specialist must be consulted, the infirmary has an imposing list of 
leading specialists in Boston who will see Newton students almost 
immediately. If a student is recommended by her doctor to one not 
on the college list, it is requested that he report directly to the in- 


firmary. If a student requires out-patient or emergency treatment, or 
must be hospitalized, she is taken by one of the nurses to St. Eliza- 
beth's Hospital, where she will receive the best of treatment. In serious 
cases, the doctor will generally himself call the parents to explain the 

As a Catholic College, Newton has the religious formation of the 
students very much at heart. For this reason it provides a systematic 
study of theology throughout the four years of college, and makes 
available to the students participation in the life of the Church made 
present in the liturgy. 

The Lafosse Program 

The Religious of Christian Education maintain the Lafosse Train- 
ing Program which is affiliated with Xewton College of the Sacred 
Heart. The professors who teach in the program are members of the 
Newton College of the Sacred Heart Faculty. The courses are ap- 
proved and the credit for them is given by Newton College. 

The Mount Alverma College Program 

The Missionary Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception 
have arranged that some of the courses given in Mount Alvernia 
College are to be under the supervision of Newton College of the 
Sacred Heart which assumes responsibility for the choice of faculty 
members, the syllabus for these courses, and the giving of credit for 


The Curriculum 

The College offers a curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts.* It is important that, as an institution of higher learning, the 
College should provide the students with the study of religion that is 
essential to the educated Catholic in the contemporary world. All 
students, therefore, are required to study scripture for two semesters 
and theology for six semesters. 

As the study of philosophy is necessary to a liberal education and 
assists in the understanding of theology, four semesters of philosophy 
are required for all students. 

The first two years of the curriculum are designed to provide the 
student with a general educational background. The greater part of 
the student's time in each semester is given to an integrated course in 
the Study of Western Culture. This course runs through four semes- 
ters and is taken by all Freshmen and Sophomores. Its purpose is to 
open the mind of the student to great problems in the areas of polit- 
ical and social life, the arts, religion, philosophy, the sciences, and 
mathematics. One of the purposes of the lectures given in these var- 
ious fields is to acquaint the student with the nature and method of 
the scholarly disciplines which deal with these areas of human life. 
The course does not attempt a survey of Western civilization but 
rather a presentation of some of the most significant problems that 
have faced Western man. Because of the nature of the material, no 
one lecturer or small group of lecturers can be expected to handle it; 
so the resources of the whole Faculty are called upon for the planning 
of the program and the giving of the lectures. From time to time 
professors from other campuses are invited to give lectures. The 
course is carried on under the supervision of the Dean with the assist- 
ance of a Coordinator. A daily lecture, a weekly discussion period, 
and a weekly reading assignment of considerable length make up the 
work of the course. 

A reading knowledge of one foreign language, shown in a foreign 
language reading test, is a requirement for the degree. This require- 
ment may also be met by the successful completion of the equivalent 
of sixteen semester hours' work in the language. 

*The degree of Bachelor of Science is given only to registered nurses who make at 
least two years of study, completing four semesters of theology, two of philosophy, 
and the requirements of one major field. 

The Curriculum 21 

The student receives her Academic Cap when she has passed the 
first three semester courses in theology, philosophy, and the Study of 
Western Culture, provided that she has completed two semesters of 
Physical Education and is in good scholastic and social standing. 

The Junior and Senior years are devoted principally to specializa- 
tion in a major field. The purpose of the major courses is to give the 
student a thorough introduction to one scholarly discipline, its sub- 
ject matter and its methods, so as to inculcate those intellectual habits 
which the discipline especially imparts. A secondary objective is to 
prepare the student to pursue graduate studies in the field, and, in 
some cases, to enter professional work in it. 

Within the past few years, New ton graduates have attended most of 
the outstanding graduate schools in this country. A partial list of the 
American universities where they have been studying includes: Bos- 
ton, Boston College, Brown, Catholic, Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, 
Dartmouth, Duke, Fordham, Ceorgetown, Harvard, Marquette, 
Michigan, New York, Northwestern, Ohio State, Pennsylvania, St. 
Louis, Stanford, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Yale. While most of the 
Newton graduates pursue their studies in the arts and sciences, some 
have received their degrees in law or medicine. The various depart- 
ments of the college frequently assess their offerings in view of the 
changes taking place on the graduate level. 

Study Abroad 

The importance of a thorough and complete preparation in the 
major field has led the Administration of the College to decide 
against allowing a student to take a year of her college course abroad 
and then return as a member of her original class. But if a student 
wants to study abroad, and if she has demonstrated reliability and 
academic competence, the .Administration may allow her to fol low 
one of these plans: 

1. Study in a summer session at a university abroad. If the student 
brings back with her a transcript or its equivalent, the appropriate 
number of credits will be transferred to her Newton record on the 
usual conditions: a grade of C— or better, and if the course is to 
count either as an upper-division course in the major field or as a 
course required of all students, the passing of an appraisal test at 

2. Study at a university abroad during one semester of the college 

22 The Curriculum 

year, with a total of not more than eight credits to be transferred on 
the conditions indicated under Plan 1. 

3. A semester of study at a foreign university followed by or pre- 
ceded by a semester of summer study either in the United States or 
abroad. In this case, eight credits may be transferred for each semester 
of study— sixteen credits in all— on the conditions indicated under 1. 

The student who follows 2 or 3 must be responsible for checking 
with the Registrar regarding the possibility of fulfilling the general 
requirements for the degree and with the faculty members in her 
major field regarding fulfilling the requirements in that field. She 
must remember that many upper-division courses are given in alter- 
nate years at Newton, and that in some cases the faculty members will 
not accept a course taken elsewhere as the equivalent of a required 
upper-division course in the major field. Her plan of study, including 
her courses at Newton and abroad, must be approved in writing by 
the Registrar and by one faculty member for the major field. Lastly, 
the student must secure the written permission of the Dean of the 
College who will give it only if the plan has been approved by the 
Registrar and faculty member concerned, and if the student has 
maintained a very good cumulative average (at least B— ) at Newton, 
and has demonstrated personal maturity and reliability. 

A student considering study abroad should note particularly that 
the responsibility for planning and carrying through a program of 
study abroad rests with her. Unless she has secured complete approval 
of her plan before she goes abroad, she will not be allowed to return 
to Newton as a member of her original class. The fact that a plan has 
been approved should not be taken to mean that the Administration 
of the College is responsible for seeing that it is implemented. Prob- 
lems related to housing, financing, securing tutors, etc. are in the 
hands of the student; also, no changes in Newton's schedules of classes 
or course requirements will be made to accommodate the student's 
needs. Finally, the student should bear in mind that if unforeseen 
circumstances prevent her fulfilling her program, she will not be able 
to complete her work for the degree by the date at which she would 
normally have graduated. 

Summer Study 

Summer Study, either in the United States or abroad, is allowed 
and sometimes advised. Courses taken in summer school may count as 

The Curriculum 23 

upper-division courses in a major field if the student passes Newton 
College's examination in the subject matter of the course. In the same 
way, a course taken in summer school may replace one of the courses 
required for the degree if the student passes Newton College's exam- 
ination in the subject. Credit will be transferred from any accredited 
college or university for a course in which the student has received a 
grade of C— or above. 

The grading system is as follows: 
A+ = 99,98,97 


Excellent, outstandingly 
fine work 

A = 96,95,94 

A— = 93,92,91,90 

B+ = 89, 88, 87 \ 

B = 86, 85, 84 \ Very good work 

B— = 83,82,81,80 ) 

C+ = 79,78,77 \ 

C = 76, 75, 74 > Good, adequate work 

C- = 73,72,71,70 ) 

D+ = 69,68,67 ) 

D = 66, 65, 64 > Passing work 

D- = 63,62,61,60 ) 

F = Below 60 Failure 

Good scholastic standing consists in having a cumulative passing 
average. A student whose cumulative average falls below C— will be 
dropped from the college for poor scholarship, unless in the case of a 
Freshman an exception is made at the end of the first semester. (The 
cumulative average is found by taking the average of the semester 
averages to date.) A student who has been dropped for poor scholar- 
ship may be readmitted in certain circumstances and at the discretion 
of the Administration, provided she has maintained an average of 
B— (80%) for two or three semesters at another accredited four-year 
liberal arts college. 

Students are expected to attend all their classes. Absence from 
classes, laboratory periods, and seminars will sometimes lower a stu- 
dent's grade on the course as will absence from classes at which a test 
is given. 

Each student is expected to be aware of her academic standing: her 
cumulative average, completion of courses required for the degree, 
fulfillment of the requirements in upper-division courses in her major 
field. For this reason, it is the policy of the Administration not to 

24 Admission 

issue routine warnings on academic standing to students or their 
parents. However, every kind of assistance will be given by members 
of the Administration and the Faculty to students who seek it, and 
inquiries from parents about their daughter's work will always be 

When the student has entered Junior year she should begin to 
consider the degree requirements which she may still have to fulfill. If 
she has not passed a foreign language reading test, she must take the 
equivalent of sixteen hours' study of a language. Other requirements 
include the accumulation of one hundred twenty-eight credits; the 
passing of all required courses; the earning of a grade of C or above 
in eight upper-division courses in the major field, in the Senior Essav 
and comprehensive examinations and the fulfillment of whatever 
other requirements may be made in the student's major field. 

During the college course, students on the Dean's List are those who 
during the previous semester have maintained a scholastic average of 
B-(-. Honors students are those who during the previous semester have 
maintained a scholastic average of A— or more. The college confers 
honors at graduation upon students who have maintained a high level 
of scholastic achievement during their entire course. The scholastic 
average required for a degree cum laude is 87%; for magna cum laude, 
92%; for summa cum laude, 95%. These honors are based entirely 
upon scholarship. Membership in honor societies is given according 
to the regulations of the societies. Chapters of Kappa Gamma Pi and 
Phi Alpha Theta are established on the campus. 

The Trustees of Newton College offer each year an award to the 
Sophomore having the highest cumulative average for the two years of 
the Study of Western Culture. The award is a fellowship for the 
study of Far Eastern Culture at Sophia University in Tokyo for the 
summer session, and includes the travel and living expenses of the 
student, as well as her tuition. 

Scholastic standards are the object of constant solicitude. Admission 
to the college is granted only to well-qualified students who have 
attained more than average success in their secondary-school studies. 
Remaining in college depends on scholastic achievements as well as 
on satisfactory conduct. The college will drop any student whose 
cumulative average falls below 70%, and it may request the with- 
drawal of any student whose behavior is not in accord with the stand- 
ards required by the college. Whatever action is taken regarding ad- 


mission and retention of students results, then, from a concern for the 
maintenance of a standard of excellence in ever) aspect of college life. 


Admission to Freshman Cj vss 

To be considered for the Freshman Class an applicant must 

1 . file her application before February 15 of her senior year in high 

2. offer sixteen high school units in academic subjects.

tion Board whenever the college curriculum allows of it. Incoming 
Freshmen should write to the Assistant Dean before September about 
the advisability of taking advanced placement tests given by Newton 
College in sciences, languages and mathematics. 

The Committee on Admissions holds monthly meetings at which 
decisions are made regarding candidates whose credentials are com- 
plete at that time. 

•Candidates are responsible for registering with the College Entrance Examination 
Board for the tests. Information about the tests, test centers, fees and dates mav be 
obtained by writing to College Entrance Examination Board, P.O. Box 592, Prince- 
ton, New Jersey, or P.O. Box 27896, Los Angeles 27, California.

Finally, she must satisfactorily complete a senior essay or project 
pertinent to her major and pass a comprehensive examination in that 
field with grades of C or better. 

Courses with a double number, for example Art 31-32, extend 
through two semesters. Odd-numbered courses are given in the first 
semester; even-numbered courses in the second. Courses with a cata- 
logue number of 30 or higher carry upper-division credit for students 
majoring in that department. The number in parentheses after the 
title of the course indicates the number of semester hours of credit. 
Courses are offered only if a sufficient number enroll for them.
